It all started with Angels With Dirty Faces. This movie was one of the good ones.

Watching them since childhood. Good how somethings never change. Attempts to address inner city youth in a comedic fashion. Although highly stereotyped characters, Still fun to watch.

This film is better than bad.

I like it.

I like the scene where Muggs McGinnis tries to kiss the nurse.

I really liked this movie. The part where Muggs was praying and crying showed how much he really cared for his friend. It was a nice touch. More of our modern movies could use a lot more humanity and caring instead of all the senseless violence and sex-saturated tripe. Good story plot, good entertainment and a joy to watch. Thanks for this movie.

I seen the deadend kids movies when I was a kid and thought they were lost forever until I seen Smart Alecks. I wish they made movies like this again. I really liked this movie and to see Leo and Hans again was a real treat. Hope I can find more movies like this one. The Best movie I've seen in a long time.

I thought it was a nice movie. The kids were alot more decent than alot of movies today. It was very touching to see Mugs praying and crying for his friend.

This is the one where Mugs starts crying while he's praying.
Other than that it's a good movie.
